I'm back!!

Well, since I have now been tagged by both Shane and Heather, I figured it was probably time for me to update this thing. That and the fact that I haven't updated it since November 2 of last year. I'm not very good at this, am I?

The Rules: Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
Share 5 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog, OR
Share the 5 top places on your “want to see or want to see again” list, OR
Share 5 things you never pictured being in your future when you were 25 years old.

Tag a minimum of 5, maximum of 10 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. The tagees have a choice of which they want to do.

Since I have already shared random facts about myself on here and am not yet 25 years old, here are the top 5 places on my "want to see or want to see again" list:

1. Heaven!!! I can't wait to see it. I have tried for as long as I can remember to picture what it will be like, but I know that it will be so much better than anything I can imagine.

2. Niagra Falls. The power that all of that water must carry with it would be a truly incredible sight to behold. A waterfall of that magnitude is unlike anything I have ever seen.

3. The Grand Canyon. I saw it with my family when we went on our vacation a couple of weeks ago, but it was so overwhelming that it was impossible to take it all in. I would love to have a chance to see it again.

4. Sequoia National Park. We made two trips to this park on the above mentioned vacation, but neither time were we able to see the massive trees as well as we would have liked. The first time, we didn't make it to the biggest trees because the road had too much snow and ice on it and our snow chains didn't fit. The second time, it was dark before we got there, so we were only able to see the trees by moonlight. As incredible as it was at night, I can only imagine what it would be like in daylight.

5. Death Valley National Park. Though a nightmare to the settlers of years past (hence its name Death Valley), in the present day it is lots of fun and quite amazing. We traveled through Death Valley on the same vacation as the Grand Canyon and Sequoia National Park, and we had an awesome time. The salt flats, the sand dunes, the lowest point of elevation in the Northern Hemisphere, the mountains, it was all incredible.

Since I have taken so long to do this, I don't have anywhere near 5 people to tag. I will, however, tag Jeanne and Danna, who have both been longer in updating their blogs than I have.

Thanks, Shane and Heather, for getting me back to blogging! Maybe I'll be more faithful to continue this time.
